Join the Isle of Wight Walking Festival 2021 and take part in one of the UK’s longest running walking festivals with a 22-year history. Discover unique routes with experienced local walkers and enjoy an extensive walks programme that includes walks across, over and around the Island.
Get up close and personal with the best of the Island’s stunning scenery; journey from the beautiful chalky cliffs of the west coast to the lush green rolling hills of the east. The Isle of Wight is often referred to as ‘England in Miniature’, so in just one day of walking you could see the very best of the English countryside from sand dunes and pebbly coves to thatched villages and bustling sailing towns.
This friendly festival hosts a variety of walks led by knowledgeable volunteer walk leaders. You’ll easily find a walk that suits you - whether you’re looking for a shorter stroll or a day long hike across the Island. There are themed walks too, from speed-dating to ghost walks to pub walks to smugglers trails!
Over half the Isle of Wight is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) and in 2019 the Island became a UNESCO Bisosphere Reserve. Add 500 miles of well-maintained and signposted footpaths and you'll see why the Isle of Wight is the perfect place for a walking festival.
2021 Isle of Wight Walking Festival dates are 9th to the 22nd October. There is around 100 walks for you to choose from across this two week period – from short to long, flat to hilly, beaches to forests and everything in between.
